Dr Fiona McIntyre (Osteopath) - BSc (Clin Sc), MHSc (Osteo)

Fiona aims to provide each individual patient with the best, safest and most effective Osteopathic healthcare. Fiona has treated
athletes of all sports for many years. Coming from a sporting background of high level indoor and field hockey, swimming, gym, yoga and regular long distance running, Fiona aims for the patient to recover from their injury as quickly as possible, with minimal time off from their activity, and with home-based strategies and techniques to reduce the incidences of future injury occurrences.

Fiona has completed Lower Limb Biomechanics, Orthotics Prescription and Fitting Course, and has a keen interest in the link between
foot biomechanics and dysfunctions in other areas of the body.

Obstetrics and Osteopathy are another keen interest for Fiona – She enjoys assisting the mother’s body throughout the pregnancy, and in preparation for birth.

In her spare time, Fiona loves spending time together with her husband and two daughters – Mae and Eloise.

He enjoys treating a variety of conditions; anything from repetitive strain injuries, to those of a traumatic nature. Being an avid sailor, having
competed at an international level, and cruised from Europe to Australia, Matt has a special interest in sports injuries. Matt is motivated to
achieve optimal physical health for each athlete, and aims to restore and improve each athlete’s performance in the process.

their wellbeing with the help of prescribed stretches and exercise in order to achieve long lasting results.
